Abstract

Variations in pork tenderness, ageing and overall meat quality were investigated to determine optimal boning methods to overcome tenderness problems associated with pork. Accelerated boning, stunning method (carbon dioxide verses electrical), chilling conditions and low voltage electrical stimulation were investigated to determine the impacts of these conditions on eating quality of pork longissimus, particularly tenderness.
